Materials: Solid carved tiger flame maple top and back; solid African mahogany sides and neck; solid Macassar ebony fingerboard and headplate, gold mother-of-pearl diving bird fingerboard inlay, solid graphite nut.

Notes: The electric guitars made by the Paul Reed Smith company are among the most influential and coveted electric guitars made today. The PRS SC-J is an innovative hollowbody archtop combining the comfort of a thinline profile with the deep throated resonance of an L-5 style full width body and long scale neck.

Thinline 17" archtops are rare indeed; the premium priced Gibson Byrdland and the very scarce L-5CT ("George Gobel") are virtually the only predecessors. The PRS SC-J is not only thinner than the Byrdland, but the body is almost equal in length to a Super 400. This stunning guitar is one of just 200 produced for US distribution, out of a one-time-only run of only 300 worldwide.

Finished in a warm golden PRS "Vintage Natural" lacquer, the instrument is in pristine 100% original condition, and is supplied with its original hang tags and factory paperwork. The top and back are carved of solid tiger flame maple, with a small interior block anchoring the bridge to enhance stability and sustain. The neck profile has the traditional PRS "Wide-Fat" carve, a gentle, full D profile reminiscent of the classic 50's L-5 and Super 400 models. Action is smooth and low over the solid Macassar ebony fingerboard, with a full length 25 1/2" scale fingerboard for increased snap and definition.

Handsome, versatilie, and effortlessly playable, the PRS SC-J combines classic tone and opulent design in one compelling package. One only: call now.

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge nickel roundwound strings (.011-.048). The guitar will accommodate lighter or heavier gauge strings, according to preference. String action is set at 5/64" to 6/64" at the 12th fret, with moderate relief for acoustic playing with medium strings. The action may be lowered or raised to your requirements with the adjustable bridge.

Case: Original black deluxe arched plush lined hardshell case.
